As a parent, you are constantly looking for ways to make your life a little easier and more organized. Luckily, there are plenty of "hacks" out there that can help you save time, money, and sanity. Here are a few of our favorites:
Use a shower caddy as a portable toy organizer. Have you ever gone on a long car ride and realized you forgot to pack your child's favorite toy? A shower caddy can be a lifesaver in this situation. It's the perfect size to hold small toys, coloring books, and other activities to keep your child entertained on the go.
Use a lint roller to remove crumbs from car seats. It's almost inevitable that at some point, your child will spill a snack in the car. A lint roller is a quick and easy way to pick up all of those pesky crumbs without having to vacuum the entire backseat.
Make your own baby wipes. Baby wipes can be expensive, especially if you go through them quickly. An easy hack is to make your own by mixing water, a few drops of baby wash, and a squirt of baby oil in a container. You can also add a few drops of essential oils for added fragrance.
Use a clothespin to hold a pacifier in place. If you have a baby who constantly drops their pacifier, a clothespin can be a handy solution. Simply attach the pacifier to their shirt with the clothespin to keep it within reach. Shop our Silicone Teething and Pacifier Chain here.
Use a muffin tin to organize small items. Muffin tins are not just for baking! They can also be used to organize small items like hair ties, bobby pins, and other accessories. Simply place the items in each muffin cup for an easy-to-see and access organization solution.
Use a paper plate as a makeshift plate for messy foods. If you have a child who loves messy foods like spaghetti or ribs, a paper plate can be a great hack. It's disposable, so you don't have to worry about cleaning a plate, and it's also large enough to catch any spills.
We hope these parent hacks help make your life a little easier. Do you have any of your own to share? Check our ultimate Parent Hacks collection here.
